FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Colony Restaurant and Chowder House Announces Closure
Mark Rodd, President & CEO of Rodd Hotels & Resorts announced today that after 43 years of operation The Colony Restaurant and Chowder House will be closing. The restaurant best known for its home-style cooking and views of the Harbour was a staple in the Yarmouth community for many years.
"This has been an extremely difficult decision for our company." said Mark Rodd "We are exceptionally grateful for the dedication of our great staff as well as the support of the local community."
Since the closure of the Ferry service along with a struggling economy, business has continued to decline and currently, there is not enough business to support the operation. We encourage our loyal customers to continue dining with us at The Colony Restaurant and Chowder House during the next eight weeks. Rodd Grand Hotel will continue to provide dining service to the Yarmouth community at Haley's Lounge and the Ship's Bell Restaurant.
